Why College is So Expensive: Coach Salaries

We've known this for quite awhile, because the television news talks about salaries of college and university coaches: they make way too much money. Tom and I talk about this all the time- that coaches at colleges and universities are overpaid. If you wonder why College Tuition skyrocketed since the mid-80s, it's because schools are paying coaches salaries in the hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars. 

Deadspin has put together this handy breakdown of each state's highest-paid employee and, well, wow. What can you say. It's not exactly news that America spends a good deal of money on sports, but it's still a little stunning to see it broken down like this.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
